Who needs a stinkin' gall bladder anyway?

Would you like to see where I'll be spending all of my time over the next few days? Right here in my bed wondering how they can pull an entire organ out of such a tiny hole. Seriously, I had my gall bladder removed and I have four teeny tiny incisions across my belly. Now I don't know how big a gall bladder actually is, but I would assume that it is bigger than a grain of rice and I swear these cuts aren't any bigger than that. Now with that said the pain is MUCH larger than a grain of rice! But I have this wonderful, ushy, squshy, comfy, cozy bed and a sweet, doting husband to help me recover! I am sure I'll be back in the studio in no time at all!!

Wishing you a quick recovery! Be sure to take it slow & easy even when you start to feel "normal" again.

Oh gosh, Laura. Sorry to hear you're stuck in bed. I know you'll be better than ever in short order.

(For what it's worth, I had to have my gb removed unexpectedly a couple of years ago. The recovery was pretty quick and I haven't had any weird or unpleasant side effects.)
